A few months ago, I found out that a coworker was pregnant.  I wanted to make a quilt for the baby, so I took her input to design this quilt.  I realize the colors are not typical for a baby quilt, but they are some of her favorite colors and are fairly gender-neutral.  Not long after finding out my coworker was pregnant, I found out that my cousin was pregnant too.  I decided to make two identical quilts.  Making identical quilts made it simple; I cut the pieces for both quilts at the same time.  Both were completely hand-stitched.  I now identify myself as a quilter and I can't wait to make more.

Quilt #1




Quilt #2




And my dog loves the quilts.  He loved laying on both of them as I was making them.

I love your fabric choices.  Orange can be so difficult to match.  And you dog is adorable!

Beautiful! Love the theme and the colors are great.  I'm very attracted to all things 'nature' themed!

I'm using the leftover fabric to make something I found on uncommongoods.com, something they call "pee-pee teepees."  At least one of the quilts is going to a boy, so I thought they would a neat bonus.  They were $12 each on the website.  Surprisingly they are not that difficult to make.  The original link to the item is http://www.uncommongoods.com/item/item.jsp?source=related_ug&itemId=13271

Completely hand-stitched?!  That's incredible.  The quilts are lovely.
